in hours, days, weeks ahead. we will get a semi-balanced small agreement. mr. speaker, we don't have a trillion dollar debt because we haven't taxed enough. we have a trillion dollar debt because we spend too much. that was ronald reagan in 198 # 2. president reagan led america out of recession. history has a way of repeating itself. somehow washington never gets the message. >> president obama said he would push for a bill that would actually -- what it would do is include a renewal of the unemployment extension of the bush tax cuts for middle class americans who make less than $250,000 a year. some of us will be watching the ball drop in times square. we may hear the gauntlet drop on capitol hill. live in the newsroom. back to you. >> thank you, derek. >> we are also counting down to 2013. hundreds of thousands of people will bring in the new year in times square. organizers have been planning all year for the ball drop. wendy gi jlet has a look at the preparations. >> more than 2,000 pounds of confetti are in place. >> that's fantastic. >> ready to be thrown out by hand from build

and as a matter of principle, to the attacks on the chark of former senator chuck hagel. mr. hagel is a man of unshakable character and integrity who has served his country in the most distinguished manner in peace and war." this is reagan's a second. that is a bipartisan group of highly respected people. why shouldn't those voices be as loud as special interests waging a campaign against chuck hagel? >> i don't think gay advocates, i don't think israel advocates are special interest. they are incredibly important base constituencies to the democrat party. they are also very significant in our society. they are people -- and let's also talk about this, with the gay comment he made. first of all, i think it shows a tremendous bias. i don't know what aggressively gay is, i can only describe it as aggressively stupid. i asked every gay friend of mine to be aggressively gay, and have still not been able to get an answer. and the next secretary of defense will have to implement the full integration of gays openly into the military. >> what's your list? not a single one of those folks, they have

, not a reduced, flow of revenues to the federal government. mr. speaker, he was right. he was right then, reagan was right when he said it. president clinton was right in the tax cut he is presided over, as was president bush. absolutely true. i'll say it again. lower rates of taxation will stimulate economic activity and raise the levels of personal and corporate income as to yield within a few years an increased, not a reduced, flow of revenues to the federal government. it is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now. why do i bring this up? is there anybody in washington, d.c. who is talking about cutting tax rates? and the answer is no. there's really not. there's not one person in this chamber who comes to the floor and talks about cutting tax rates. we might like to but we're in a tough economic crisis right now and folks are concerned about the revenue side of the equation. what folks are talking about, though, is not raising tax rates. for some reason, for reasons that i can

the gentleman from texas, mr. poe, for five minutes. mr. poe: mr. speaker, we don't have a trillion dollar debt because we have not taxed enough. we have a trillion dollar debt because we spend too much. that was reagan in 1982. he led america out of a recession but history has a way of repeating itself. somehow washington never gets the message. and here we are 30 years later on the brink of another crisis on new year's eve still addicted to spending money. now, we are over $16 trillion in debt. president reagan's words and principles remain true today, and they were true when he said them. the problem is spending money. mr. speaker, the american people know this. why doesn't the federal government and congress understand it? why? because washington is obsessed with spending someone else's money. it's the arrogance of power that congress spends the people's money without regard to how this obsession affects those very people. when american families are in debt, they sacrifice, they cut spending, whether that means taking one less family vacation or fewer presents under the christmas tree. home

in the conversation. cnbc chief washington correspondent john harwood. mr. harwood, hello to you. talking about speaker boehner and his control of the party. does he has have it? >> no. nobody does. in fact, have you a reagan biograph biographer, craig shirley, prominent conservative, who said at this moment the republican party is a collection of warring factions. i spoke last night with a republican member of the house caucus who was bitterly critical of his colleagues who says there are 50 members of our caucus that don't have the political sense that god gave a goose. this is why john boehner can't lead them, could not lead them to support the plan b which he proposed. it shielded republicans from the argument that john yarmouth and other democrats might make, they are protecting million areas, raise taxes on $1 million incomes, and couldn't even get that far which is why this morning the president has a stronger hand he had a week ago with republicans unable to even pass that fallback. >> can anybody -- let's say there is talk that john boehner is safe in his job. can anybody step in and c

. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. bingaman: in 181, in his first inaugural address, president reagan said -- quote -- "government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem." i came to the senate two years later in 1983 with the firm belief that in most cases his statement was wrong. i believed then and i believe now that the federal government can be a constructive force for good in protecting and maintaining the civil liberties of all americans, in maintaining and strengthening our economy, in he can prosecuting our environment -- in protecting our environment and in helping americans live product tiffed and fulfilling lives. as i luke back over the last -- as i look back over the last 30 years, many of the arguments that have consumed our time here in the senate, whether on questions of spending or taxes or regulation or fiscal policy, those questions have divided between those who saw government as the problem and those who believed that it could and should be a constructive force for helping the american people deal with problems. and i consider myself further
